Snowdrop

After a few days feeling pretty awful with a cold and not getting out and about much, it was nice to get out for a walk up Shipley Hill this morning, to check on the progress of the local Snowdrops.  The bitterly cold weather was useful for making the muddy ground easy to walk on and when we got up the hill, we found a few little, white gems glowing beneath the trees.
Further on, the canopy was thicker and the ground darker, especially as a few grains of snow started to fall, but a couple of shafts of sunlight managed to find a small clump of flowers and made them stand out even more.
Beautiful...
